About the show
Jack and the Beanstalk is the well-known story of a young boy who sets out to sell his prized cow when rent money falls low. When he meets a mysterious figure in the woods, he trades his cow for “magic” beans – much to his mother’s chagrin. But quickly, the power of the beans is revealed!
Award-winning comedian, composer and presenter Vikki Stone returns to the Lyric Hammersmith’s pantomime for the second year running, to play the slimy role of villain Fleshcreep. Further casting includes Faith Omole as Jack and Kayla Miekle as her loveable cow sidekick, Daisy, as well as Daniel Fraser as Jill, Cherelle Skeete as the Fairy Godmother and Kraig Thornber as Dame Lotte Trottalot.
